As much as a missed opportunity as a Cops movie could be.
Deadline reported that a Cops movie is in development, with Ruben Fleischer directing. Guess this means we’re not getting Zombieland 2 soon (unless Fleischer isn’t directing), which I’d much rather have.
It’s not really surprising that a Cops movie is happening, given how Hollywood likes to turn TV shows into movies and vice versa. I’m fine with the idea of a movie, but the way they’re doing it just seems wrong. The movie is being described as “an edgy narrative feature with a buddy comedy bent on the order of a Lethal Weapon.” That makes it seem like it’ll only be a Cops movie by name and probably the theme song, so we’re probably just getting another generic “dark and gritty” cop movie.
